Artist shows 'eye candy' at studio reception


Centrum artist in residence Remedios Rapoport will be sharing her mixed-media art with the community May 26.

The reception is set for noon to 4 p.m. in Centrum’s artist studio building, No. 205 at Fort Worden State Park.

Rapoport, who has painted since childhood, focuses on dialogue about the world and culture in her work.

“I mix pictorials and words with found objects in my paintings and kinetic sculpture,” she stated in a press release. “My intention is to attract viewers with visual eye candy, that stimulates minds across cultural and political boundaries, for a healthier world, for all people of the world.”

A Portland resident who is new to showing her work in Port Townsend, she said the Olympic National Forest has inspired her more recent artistic creations.

Her new body of work is called Sacred Earth/Holy Water.

Rapoport will also be showing a kinetic sculpture, The Gentle Revolution Mobile, which she uses to promote positive change.

Since 2007, the mobile has traveled to Portland, Seattle, Boston and Chicago as part of solo exhibitions and sociopolitical group shows, she said.
